2017 Whispering Angel Côtes de Provence Rosé - $38
"This is so lovely with the strawberry and cream character but also so much minerality in the form of slate and chalk. Medium-bodied, this glides rather effortlessly on the palate but still shows flavorful notes of peaches and spices. Drink now." - 92 Points, James Suckling
2016 Vietti Moscato D'Asti Cascinetta - $39
Arguably the best Moscato that we have ever tried. The balance between acidity and sweetness is just unbelievable, with nothing out of place, and the ginger, peaches and floral aromatics burst out of the glass - very pleasant indeed. Beautiful as an apéritif, but matches perfectly a nice cheese board, fruity desserts, Asian dishes or even lobster.
NV Ferrari Maximum Rosé Trento DOC - $53
The vineyards’ altitude give this wine a great concentration and lovely mineral notes, so typical of Ferrari’s wines. On the nose, the Maximum Brut Rose delicate and fragrant with aromas of raspberry, wild strawberries, brioches and a balsamic undertone. The palate is smooth, elegant, with a remarkably concentrated finish. This wine will be the perfect pair of Italian antipasti, seafood or the most classic spaghetti with tomato sauce.
NV Laurent-Perrier Rosé - $120
"Rose' was long regarded as the illegitimate offspring of Champagne. This is 100% pinot noir, rather than a blend coloured by pinot noir red wine. The full salmon colour is an immediate indication of its provenance, the bouquet complex and alluring, leading directly into the cherry and strawberry flavours of the long, sustained palate; excellent finish and aftertaste." - James Haliday, Top 100 Wines *comes in a beautiful gift box*
2016 Domaine Lignier-Michelot Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes - $122
Ask a wine collector to choose which wine they would drink every night for the rest of their life, and the answer is most commonly Chambolle-Musigny; a very feminine wine made from Pinot Noir sourced from the eponymous town in the heart of Burgundy. The dark-fruited, plush and highly perfumed Chambolle-Musigny can't help but overwhelm the drinker for its elegance, tenderness, harmony and silkiness.
Virgile Lignier-Michelot makes a style of red Burgundy that even the most discerning Burgundy buyers are finding a little too good to be true. Flavour and tannin extraction during fermentation is gentle but comprehensive, resulting in red Burgundy wines of excellent flavour intensity, an elegant but discernible structure, stunning purity and balance. The wines may be approached early with a decant in advance.
Antipodes Pink Gin - $89
